Frankford- The Atlantic Community Thrift Shop (A.C.T.S.) and the Delaware Marine Trade Association have recently made donations to Camp Barnes Inc.

The Atlantic Community Thrift Shop, located at 34634 Atlantic Avenue, Ocean View, DE, donated $20,000 and has been a huge supporter of Camp Barnes.

The donation from the Atlantic Community Thrift Shop will go towards the continued renovations and general operations of the camp.  A.C.T.S. has supported the camp over the years through financial donations and staff members volunteering at the camp.

The Delaware Marine Trade Association, located at 100 Marina Lane, Milford, DE donated life vests to Camp Barnes. Pictured below with Master Corporal Hatfield of the Delaware State Police is Captain Abigail Gilliar and Captain Carl Littleton of the Delaware Marine Trade Association.

Camp Barnes, a non-profit organization, is a recreational overnight summer camp run by the Delaware State Police in which there is no fee to attend.  The camp is for boys and girls between the ages of 10-13.  The Camp has served the needs of thousands of children throughout Delaware. For over 60 years, Camp Barnes has remained basically unchanged. It was originally designed to provide the children who were unable to attend summer camp an opportunity to experience life at a summer youth camp.

Camp Barnes is extremely thankful for the generous donations they have received to support the summer youth camp!
